Overview

This volume advances understanding of ecological and evolutionary processes in a common frame of reference—that of space. Relevant processes operating at the scale of the population, metapopulation, and the geographical range are accordingly examined. Although this study's focus is largely on plants, questions addressed are equally applicable to animals.
